Our technology insertion philosophy allows customers to seamlessly integrate new, higher performance hardware technologies while retaining form, fit and function and application software compatibility. This capability is enormously attractive to companies in the defense and aerospace market where the life of a program is often measured in decades.
In addition, these companies have invested significant time and effort in detailed system integration and validation, and they want to be an integral part of the configuration management/change approval process throughout the life of the program. Controlling the configuration is an important part of their risk-reduction strategy. Our Configuration Management Service is designed for these customers.
Configuration Management enables customers to choose one of two options: you can choose to be informed of the changes as they occur, or you may choose to be party to approval of the changes, and therefore to control the configuration baseline.
The Configuration Management process generates a manufacturing data package which identifies and records both the hardware and software configurations. These include, for example: build state; address mapping; I/O configurations; BSP, drivers and BIT diagnostic firmware requirements; and revision level status of the system elements.
Controlled configuration ensures that later purchases of the same equipment will be identical to the original.

Abaco Systems’ ‘technology insertion’ design philosophy - which has, for many years, provided our customers with the ability to seamlessly integrate new, higher performance hardware technologies while retaining form, fit and function and application software compatibility - is enormously attractive to the defense and aerospace market.
Technology: insert or preserve?
One of the aspects of defense programs that is different is their longevity. That has significant implications for the technology that’s at their heart. Here, we look at the options available to maximize a platform’s viability well into the future.
